Tropical RugsTropical rugs are hot and cool. They evoke the blazing temperatures of the equator and the tropics. They also bring to mind lagoons and windswept beaches as the perfect places to chill.

The tropics are about the world’s oceans. So those tropical bathroom rugs remind the bather of tropical rainforests and storms. And tropical kitchen rugs bring the words luscious and luau to mind.T

The tropic is an ocean-vast source of design themes for rug makers (and generations of artists for that matter). The word ‘tropical” instantly conjures exotic images of islands and season different continents.

The Tropical rug theme

The Caribbean, the Indian, and the Pacific Oceans are sources of tropical themes upon themes. The children among us even look beneath the surface of these bodies of water. They are enchanted by underwater settings and cartoon creatures. Sporty adults would prefer scuba or jet ski.

Probably the best tropical rug is one woven from natural tropical materials. Sisal derived from Mexican maguey, Chinese jute, or African coir rugs looks great on decks or patios. These are even imported from actual tropical countries. Tropical rugs are wonderful souvenirs.

Synthetic fibers are used for durable area rugs. These are also printable surfaces, great material for tropical print area rugs. You’ll find rugs with prints as colorful as any Hawaiian shirt. Check out these nautical rugs.

Practically all rug companies have collections with tropical themes. Many of these rugs can even function as indoor outdoor rugs. Here are two which specialize exclusively in tropical design rugs.

The Indich Collection

Indich Collection, based in Hawaii is a direct importer with the largest inventory of Pacific weaves. Inspired by the beauty of Hawaii, theirs are among the world’s most artful hand-woven rug collections, from fine orientals to dhurries.

Since 1979, Indich Collection has been using traditional hand made techniques to produce the exclusive Hawaiian Rugs and Pacific Rim designs.

Blue Barnacles

The company has a large collection exploring tropical themes. There are patterns inspired by coastal harbors, nautical adventures, tropical paradises, shells, starfish, sand dollars, and every manner of sea creature ever depicted on a tropical area rug.

Nautical, coastal or tropical themes are rendered on hand hooked rugs and braided rugs. Their tropical print rugs are perfect for beach cottages or fabulous for that seaside condo. Seagrass and sisal weaves are also available. The coastal theme shows lighthouses, shells, and shorebirds. The tropical theme has palm trees and parrots. The beach theme has patterns with flip-flops and beach umbrellas. Sailboats, anchors, compasses grace the classic nautical home collection.

Tropical themes have a palette of exciting, pulsating colors. Using rugs with these designs can be a challenge. But with the very extensive collection of tropical area rugs, they are a decorator’s dream.
